Philadelphia lands WWE Royal Rumble anniversary show
After all, WWE's annual 30-man battle royale will have its largest live audience ever, with 60,000-plus fans set to pack San Antonio's Alamodome on Sunday (7 p.m. ET, WWE Network).
Booker T and Diesel in 2011. And I think that's when the Rumble's at its best when you can't really put your finger on what's going to happen. Michaels would still end up in a title match at WrestleMania 23 after beating Orton and Edge in a Triple Threat match for the right to face John Cena for the WWE Championship, which Cena would win.
AJ Styles is his handpicked one whom he would like to wrestle. There will obviously be a few surprises along the way, but here are all the confirmed stars for the Royal Rumble match, in alphabetical order.
Sheamus became the first - and so far only - European victor of the WWE Royal Rumble when he booted Chris Jericho to the floor in St Louis in 2012.
Sky Q: Press Home on your Sky Q remote, select TV guide, then Box Office and then WWE Royal Rumble.
This certainly would fall under the "surprise entrant" category, as Balor has been sidelined since a shoulder injury forced him to relinquish the WWE Universal Title the night after he won it at SummerSlam.
Really, it harked back to something you might have found, say, Val Venis involved in back in the Attitude Era, and back then at least it would have been R-rated enough to seem worthwhile. Perhaps Dolph Ziggler is the superstar no one is focusing on, new attitude and all? The chip on my shoulder would not want me to come out last.
"The main reason why I would go to WWE is because I would love to have a match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania". It's a pretty exciting time whether you're a fan or a worker here in WWE, or both like myself. Nakamura is the face of NXT right now, much like Balor was before his main roster call up, but is not getting any younger. Samoa Joe is the clear-cut frontrunner for an NXT spot in the Rumble; word has it that it's not just a certainty that Joe will be up, but he will also have a great performance that will lead to something big at WrestleMania 33. The only thing is - when you look through the roster of "Smackdown", and you look down the roster of "Raw" - we don't have that many women.
"We are excited to have Philadelphia serve as host to one of WWE's biggest events of 2018", said John Saboor, WWE executive vice president of special events, in a news release.
Finally, we have the true surprises that would make mainstream noise: the nostalgic returns.
Although Ambrose now has two of the top 20 selling items on WWEShop.com and is clearly one of WWE's most popular stars, there's virtually nothing to suggest that he'll be a legitimate contender this year. There aren't many top free agents left for McMahon to go get but Omega is one of them after his time in New Japan.
But with Angle's focus likely to be on the Hall of Fame later this year, don't back him coming back this Sunday.
The Deadman is likely in the final year of his legendary WWE career and what better way to send him out than with a Royal Rumble \/em victory and a Wrestlemania \/em main event. That is now the event's calling card, and you can expect Sunday to be no different.
